Sandusky Library’s Reading for Fun Club

In the 1940’s and 1950’s, the Sandusky Library sponsored the Reading for Fun Club. Elementary school age children read and reported on ten books during the summer months. The Junior Reading for Fun Club was for first and second graders. Below are some bookmarks and bookplates from past summer reading programs. Martha Luscombe created this bookmark using the linocut print technique.

The Fourth Year Reading for Fun Award bookplate was also a linocut made by Marsha Luscombe.

The Reading for Fun bookmark below features the Sandusky Library’s original Carnegie building. It was created by Helen Zube.

Visit the website of the Sandusky Library to read about current Sandusky Library summer programs, with the theme One World, Many Stories.
